Renter is a person who rents a property, such as an apartment or a house, from a landlord. The renter is responsible for paying rent to the landlord in exchange for the use of the property. The terms of the rental agreement, such as the length of the rental period and the amount of rent, are typically outlined in a rental contract or lease. Renters are typically responsible for maintaining the property, and may be required to follow certain rules and regulations set by the landlord. In some cases, renters may also be responsible for utilities, such as electricity and water.
